I won't boo him, but I also won't wear my Langs jersey again. He did some great things. He left badly.

Definitely will NOT boo him. He was invaluable to our 2003 cup run. People seem to forget the good stuff way too easily. He really never wanted to leave NJ, but couldn't deal with his diminished role making it time to go when the season tanked last year.

I think Langs got a bad rap the last year or two with us, I remember the good things he did when he got here and the big goals he scored in the playoff's. He didn't really want to leave NJ, in fact when Lou asked him to waive his no trade clause he said "no" (the first time anyway). I understand he had some problems in his personal life at that time, so he was a bit of a complainer or whatever...big deal.
I'll cheer him.

He didn't destroy the team. John MacLean's inept coaching abilities did.

The rot set in when Lemaire wanted to give White the C for a game after the Olympics. The team was never the same after that until he was traded.

i really feel with the way he left that it was not as bad as we think, from what i gathered he was trying to stick up for some teammates and it could indeed create a little tension between him and the coach but if thats what it is he paid the price for "taking one for the team" kinda... plus with Zach being real close to him and im sure it was hard for zach to see him go that way, plus he was at Langs place when they learned he was traded...

The organization has nothing against Jamie. The players certainly don't as after he got traded he hosted the team at his house for a Super Bowl Party last year, and Zach has mentioned him countless time as a player he learned from and one that will help him be a successful captain in this league.

Why boo? Things didn't work out and it was time to move on for both parties. How many Devils players have left the organization on so-so terms only to be welcomed back with open arms by Lou? Jamie will certainly be in that group when he is done playing.

So many great Devils moments included Jamie. Booing him would be so unfortunate, but unfortunately par for the course here.

I think he deserves a healthy ovation.

I would definitely cheer for Langs his first game back. Just because his skills diminished toward the end, it doesn't wipe out all the good he did for the organization. He was an admirable captain for us during some tough transition years. He'll always be a Devil.

If I was able to go I would cheer him. In the end I'd rather remember all the good he did as a Devil including the Cup in 2003.

According to his coach, Langenbrunner was completely destructive in the locker room at the end. I don't boo players, I won't give them the satisfaction of them mattering enough, but I won't be cheering either.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Langs was my favorite player while he was here so I'll be giving him a cheer for sure. Hell, I'll even be wearing my Langs jersey. Sure, the way he left was bad but the good he accomplished here far outweighs the bad. It was just time for him to move on and time for the Devils to move on without him.

A cheer if he's announced, no acknowledgement otherwise. Hate him for the way he left? By waving his no trade clause after being asked multiple times to wave it? Just because people on the board call him a cancer it doesn't make it true. No one know what went on behind closed doors so no one can judge.


If anything I think people would have wanted him to waive the NTC SOONER since his not waiving it kept us in cap purgatory, and plus there were a 'lot' of cheers when he was a scratch the night he was traded. There was definite anger towards him. Whether we as a crowd will be more magnanimous now since we've had a year of good hockey since then or all the more angry with him since it's more obvious he needed to go by the day I can't guess.

There's no way in hell I would boo him. I don't miss him, not sorry he's gone, but booing him would be the kind of classless act that the Flyers fans would pull. I would cheer for him at the beginning of the game when he first came out, and after that he'd be just another Blue. But there's no way I would boo him, no way.
